Visiting safely

The Art Museum of Estonia wishes to offer its visitors a pleasant exhibition experience. Being dedicated to preserving Estonian art and mediating various exhibitions, we kindly ask our visitors to adhere to the following principles for the sake of safety and well-being.

  • Taking other visitors into consideration: speaking loudly or having a phone conversation in the exhibition hall may distract other art connoisseurs. We also ask you to be mindful of special events in the museum programme, such as the quiet Saturday mornings once a month designed primarily for people with sensory hypersensitivity.
  • During outbreaks of infectious diseases, it is advisable to keep a distance from other visitors, disinfect hands and wear a mask, and – if possible – to visit the museum on workdays or in the morning, i.e. outside the peak visiting hours.
  • Outdoor clothes, larger items and bags must be left at the self-service cloakroom or in a locker.
  • Works of art must not be touched, unless this has been specifically authorised.
  • Eating and drinking is not allowed in the exhibition halls. There are cafes in the Kumu Art Museum and the Kadriorg Art Museum, and water or snacks may be consumed in the lobbies. The tap water in the museums is also drinkable.
  • Pets are not allowed in the museums, with the exception of guide dogs and small lap dogs in handbags.
  • Taking pictures and filming without a camera stand and without flash is allowed for personal use. In order to take pictures for commercial purposes, a fee has to be paid and permission acquired from the museum.
  • We ask you to separate your waste and use the appropriate designated bins.
  • If you hear the fire alarm, please move to the nearest exit, and follow evacuation guidelines and instructions given by the security officers and the museum personnel.

If you have any questions, please ask the museum attendants or the information desk staff.
